7:11am
>> touching on a point you said a moment ago, the fact that these cancers tend to be more advanced and more deadly in younger age groups, is this simply because these women aren't screening? >> when you're younger, something has gone wrong with your immune system already so these cancers tend to be more aggressive. i want people to hear one thing. that doesn't mean we start screening with mammography for 20 and 30 years old. hold to our standards but what causes breast cancer? that's our weak link. >> a lot of people will be looking at these headlines this morning. as always, thank you very much. >> you bet. new jersey governor chris christie, a new battle today. this time, he's at odds with his own party. andrea mitchell is here to explain that. good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. 74% approval rating in new jersey. that's the envy of his fellow governors. that does not seem to matter to the republican party's conservative leaders. the latest sign that chris

7:13am
christie turned down the group's invitation two years ago. they see a bigger problem, the party's refusal to broaden its base. >> if the republican future does not include a place for people like chris christie, the republican party don't have a future. >> reporter: the white house isn't doing christie any favors with republican hardliners, seating him this week in the place of honor, next to the first lady at the black tie dinner for governors. chri christie's speech could help him. >> he is up for re-election and the idea of national conservatives giving him a hard time doesn't hurt with moderate voters in new jersey. >> if christie wants to run for president in 2016, he will still have to figure out how to get through the primaries without making peace with his party's right wing. natalie? >> andrea mitchell, thanks. new information this morning in the oscar pistorius murder case. the olympic star charged with

7:15am
of his partner, reeva. however, those who know steenkamp, seen here on video arriving before the evening she was shot and killed, her agent calling it inappropriate and heartbreaking. her uncle saying i'm not interested in what he's trying to do. i think it may just be hitting him now what he's done. in a documentary this past week, her parents expressed their grie grief. >> >> you can't come to terms with this. this is going to be forever, this. >> reporter: there has also been a sort of back and forth over pistorius' plans before trial. he has informed them of his intention to resume training but pistorius' spokesperson denies that, saying absolutely not, that he's currently in mourning
7:16am
and his focus is not on sports. in another strange and tragic twist for the people involved in this case, the judge who granted pistorius' bail is also in mourning right now. his first cousin and her two children were found dead in a home. police suspect she poisoned herself and her two teenage boys. natalie? >> michelle kosinski in pretoria, thank you. you can see more of that interview with reeva steenkamp's parents friday night on "dateline." matt? >> thank you. just call him the king of the world. 100 years after the sinking of the titanic, one tycoon is planning on building a modern replica of that doomed oceanliner. stephanie gosk has more on that. >> if someone said to you, we're building another titanic, do you want to join us on the first trip? would you do it or wait and see how that first trip went? a billionaire from australia has begun construction on the titanic ii and there are a lot of people clamoring to get on board.

7:19am
>> stephanie gosk, thank you very much. on scientific poll, how many of us would go on voyage on the next titanic? >> i see where in the world. >> you make it to england, send us a postcard. >> it's amazing how much smaller this is going to be compared to the other ships that are out there right now. >> the size of a pontoon boat. >> lot more life jackets and lifeboats on board this one. coming up, we've got a great story. a modern day treasure hunt. why one man decided to give away a vast fortune by burying it for you and others to find. also ahead, new controversy this morning surrounding marissa mayer's decision to ban yahoo! employees from working >> announcer: "today in the bay" weather is sponsored by bank of the west.

residence.. 7:30 now on this wednesday morning, the 27th of february, 2013. a beautiful shot of saipt peter's square at the vatican where pope benedict held his final audience, a crowd of an estimated 150,000 gathered here to see the pope deliver his public farewell. good morning, everyone. i'm savannah guthrie, live at the vatican. matt, back in new york. coming up from here, we'll talk to one of the u.s. cardinals who will help elect the next pope. as you know, the church has dealt with a lot of controversies and challenges in
7:29am
recent years. what are the cardinals looking for in the next leader? we'll get into that, matt. >> savannah, i don't want to telltales out of school, but you flew to rome overnight with cardinal dolan of new york. so, did you ask him who he might be voting for? >> it's possible. i may have asked him a few more questions. listen, if i had any confessions to make, it was extremely handy. we highway good chat and talked about the big decision facing him. he mentioned he is new at this as well. this will be his first conclave. i think he is looking forward to getting more information as well. >> i can just see you getting close to him as he was sleeping to see if he was talking in his sleep. we'll let you go at that. >> i know. and trying to get the wine over there, too, but no, no. i would noefr do that. this sounds like something out of the movies. one man out west decided to bury his multimillion dollar collection for treasure hunters to find. it happened when he was told he had a terminal illness. coming up, his remarkable story. some clues for how you can find
7:30am
the treasure and a big twist as well. savannah, back to you. all right. matt, we've got more on the historic abdication of pope benedict xvi and the current state of the catholic church. nbc's anne thompson is here at the vatican with more on that. good to see you. >> good to see you, too, savannah. as the battle for control of this institution begins, that some say is a holy mess. it's been a tumultuous eight years for the church and benedict, allegations of sex abuse, money laundering at the vatican bank, the pope's own butler stealing documents and reports of political jockeying that could make corporate america or capitol hill blush. alexandra borgese has known the pope for years. she wrote about her friend when
7:31am
he was just cardinal joseph ratzinger. >> john paul ii was much more vigorous. when he wanted something, he was really now! joseph ratzinger is not now, but is trying to convince -- maybe try to convince to make these people reasoning in a certain way, but he didn't succeed. >> reporter: even the most faithful say his legacy will be m mixed with great accolades for his teachings and writings but criticism for some of his leadership. >> success is hard to say. it's not that there's been highs and lows but issues to deal with that have been very serious. >> reporter: the abuse of children by priests has driven people away from the church. >> i think there are all kinds of rules and regulations that have been set up to protect children more so that this does not happen again. >> reporter: the growing consensus is that the next pope
7:32am
must be a strong manager, able to take on the challenges and reign in a dysfunction al. able to lead this institution and charisma never hurt. >> i hope he will be a man with a vision and can move forward. say to the crowd i love you and be strong. we have to make it together. >> reporter: her latest book is about the vatican in the 20th century. she says today there's no more fascinating story than the one playing out in st. peter's square. could you make up the drama going on inside the vatican? >> i have good fantasy, but i don't think so. >> reporter: you couldn't make this stuff up? >> no. nowadays is better than novels. >> that was nbc's anne thompson reporting. the archbishop of washington is one of the 115 cardinals who will elect the next pope.
7:33am
good morning. good to see you. >> good morning. good to be with you. >> you were in the pope's final audience this morning. some of the cardinals looked emotional, even teary. were you one of them? >> i was. it was such a powerful moment. this is the first time ever we've had a pope in this context say good-bye. and to see the thousands and thousands of people, but also to hear him speak, what this moment means. it was a very emotional moment. >> congregation of cardinals will start to meet perhaps late this week, early next week. have there been discussions, informal, among the cardinals about who may be the next pope? >> most of the cardinals are just arriving now. i would suspect in the next days there will be conversation but a lot of the conversation is just getting to know better some of the other cardinals. not all the cardinals have an opportunity to come regularly to rome for meetings. so a big part of these
7:34am
congregations is simply getting to know your brother cardinal. >> we just saw a piece that talked about some of the scandals and controversy the church has faced. i won't rattle them off again but do you feel finding somebody that can restore credibility to the institution is an urgent matter in electing the next pope? >> i think the recoveryriding thing is going to be to maintain the continuity of this focus on the mission of the church, the spiritual ministry of the church. that always will involve taking care of any problems that have arisen. i think we will go into the conclave. the cardinals will go into the conclave, looking for someone who will keep us focused. >> do you think the spiritual mission of the church, the work of the church, has been undermined by some of these scandals? >> the church and its workings are always going to suffer when we members, the human members of the church, do not live up to
7:35am
the fullness of the gospel. that's part of the history of the church. when christ created the church, divine and human, failures were built into the church. the important thing is to move beyond those. right what was wrong and move into the future. >> we've been talking about the unprecedented nature of this kind of abdication. we haven't seen it in 600 years. not totally unprecedented. do you agree with the decision? do you worry at all about the precedence that it sets? >> going into the future, we now have a new model. it's possible for a pope simply to say -- not just intellectually, but now practically, i can't do this anymore. so i think the holy father has opened up a whole new chapter in the life of the church. but what was so beautiful about this was the way pope benedict simply said, i don't have the energy to do what i know needs to be done. and i think we all know going into the future, the work of the
7:36am
pope, the next pope is going to have to be the work of moving the whole church rapidly into this very modern age. >> i have ten seconds left. if you had to choose brilliant manager, brilliant evangelist, which would you put a premium on? >> i would always choose the evangelist, the person who can announce the good news. >> cardinal wuerl, good to have you here, sir. important days ahead for you. >> you're welcome. now let's head back to new york and get a check of the weather with al. >> it is torrential rain out here. we wanted to show all these people who have stood by for the last hour or two. now we want you to go inside, get dry and get warm. let's see what we've got for you as far as your weather is concerned. look at this. this is michigan just to the north of detroit. they're going to pick up about three to eight inches of snow before this is all over. and then it will just taper off and they'll start to see some clearing. meantime, let's see what we have temperaturewise. look at these temperatures from

8:16am
hysterically. i posted it online and also on facebook. and i wasn't supposed to have one. >> facebook? >> yeah. it went around and i got grounded. >> you're grounded now but you're here in new york. ted gibson is helping you out this morning. this is something you've seen professionally. >> absolutely. >> what happened? >> the girls don't necessarily know that the hair has to be 100% dry. use a hairspray in it, just a light control hairspray, spray it on then use an iron. what's great about irons, sometimes they have a dial on them. make sure that you always, always check the dial. >> did you check the dial? >> if it's too hot -- >> there wasn't. >> there wasn't a dial? just hot and on. >> she confessed to me that she had a leave-in conditioner. it's going to be too heavy, it's going to be wet. it's not going to be dry. the hair has to be 100% dry before you put any flat iron or curling iron in the hair always.
8:17am
>> let's see how to do it the right way. >> you want to take a one-inch section. >> in her instructional video she said to hold it there for 20 seco seconds or longer. >> way too long! that is way too long. five to seven seconds is enough. all you want to do is give it some texture, give it some wave. take the iron. you wrap the hair around the iron. you leave the ends out for three to five seconds. that's all you need and all you'll get is a little bit of wave, little bit of texture. what makes it modern is that the ends are a little straighter than they are a full curl on the end. >> people who use these appliances every day, is that generally not advisable? >> that is not advisable. you should take a break from the he heat. it's like heat therapy. you want to take a break from the heat and not necessarily always use an iron on it every single day. >> tori, is there some good that's come out of all of this? you were on "ellen" yesterday,
8:18am

8:19am
residence. it's larger than the entire vatican itself. >> of course, it has a local population and they love the pope and, in fact, as it turns out, they're going to be the last people to see him before he resigns. he is going to greet them from his window at his villa. >> for 400 years, popes have used this spot as a quiet sanctuary and the occasional state visit. until recently, the area also provided a unique intersection between science and religion, nearly a dozen astronomers once use this had papal observatory to study the skies. his swiss guards, normally charged with protecting the pope, will officially be replaced by regular vatican police. benedict will stay here for about two months until renovations are complete on his future permanent home, just a few hundred yards from the papal palace. latin for mother of the church, it was once a vatican convent.
8:20am
>> he will be with the same people he was living with before in terms of security and privacy. he will have and be able to walk in the gardens, which is another thing that he did and has done up until now. >> renovations to the convent began last fall before the world knew why, mostly to make space for benedict's large, personal library. the talented musician will also move his beloved piano to his new home but everything else, from the furniture to the art, will be passed on to his successor, as it has been for centuries. another custom associated with every change in church leadership, benedict's papal gold ring, known as the fisherman's ring and the pontifical seal given to every pope will be destroyed once he abdicates. what about the personal struggle since they will share the same personal secretary? >> retire to him really remains
8:21am
retire. if he wanted to hold on to power he would have remained as pope. nothing he loves more than prayer, reading, study and i think that's exactly what he's going to do. >> how will the retired pope pay for things? according to reports, he does qualify for a small pension, but the vatican is expected to pay for most of his expenses, guys. >> let's talk a little bit, if we can kind of fast forward till tomorrow, savannah. a lot of events on his last day as the pope. what are we expecting schedulewise? >> it will be a day of circumstance, pomp and circumstance, a lot of sar moce. he will have a private audience with the cardinals, who now have all come here to say their good-byes and ultimately hold a conclave to elect the next pope. he will talk to them, greet them individually, it is expected. and then he will walk out into the courtyard, be sent off and take a helicopter to castel

gandolfo which, of course, we've just been talking about. this is a pope ready to retire to the private life. he has spent his life as a scholar, theologian, professor, somebody who feels more at home with his library books more than he ever really did with the public eye. he talked about that this morning with his public audience. at 8:00 local time he officially become becomes pope emeritus. coming up next from here, donald and ivanka trump live after your local news.

8:36am
8:37am
we're back now 8:38. "celebrity apprentice" about to kick off its 13th season here on nbc and for lucky number 13, donald trump is bringing back an all-star group from season's past. this is going to be a crazy ride. it really is. bret michaels, claudia jordan, lil' john, lisa rinna, trace adkins, omarosa is back. what are you expecting here? >> it's wild. we shot some of it. a lot of is going to be live. we shot some of t it's amazing. it's probably as tough and mean and nasty as we've had so far.
8:38am
>> do these guys get the game more now because they've all been through the mill? and how does that change how they play it? >> we pick the best people and the people that everybody wanted to see, gary or dennis rodman. we have amazing people. it was terrific. by the way, it's much different. he's much better. although there is an explosion somewhere along the line. >> something explodes? >> a lot of people are not getting along with omarosa. she's brutal. >> does gary bussey scare you a little bit, ivanka? >> he fascinates me. he views the world through a different prism, which is just incredibly interesting. >> he has been on the show a bunch of times, mostly with you, by the way. >> that's right. >> i watch him like a had hawk. >> he is highly intense, too. he is very kind but he is also -- he speaks very close to you and he is very passionate about everything. >> other than in the board room, ivanka, how much contact do you have with these contestants and when you see them, do they suck
8:39am
up to you a bit knowing you've got your dad's ear? >> it's interesting. over the years i've become quite close with a lot of different people that have been on the show and it's great to maintain the relationship and get a sense of them when they're not in the game versus when they are. some of their personalities are exactly the same and others are much softer in real life. so, it's interesting to see that and their personalities. >> i was reading about the current season. one thing that struck me, if i remember in the past you would separate the teams early into guys versus women and not doing that this year. >> we're doing it a bit differently. the thing that works best is men against women. perhaps not politically correct but since when do i care about that? >> you're starting off with team captain. >> we are and we're letting the team captain pick who they want. they've also known each other because they've competed against each other. they've raised millions and millions of dollars for celebrity charities.
8:40am
one night, as an example, first night, raised over a million dollars for charity. >> which is an aspect that doesn't get talked about enough. it seems to be cutthroat competition but it does a lot of good. bret michaels, when you look at the list of the people i ticked off a second ago, he is the only one who won his season of "celebrity apprentice." is he the odds on favorite to repeat? >> i won't say that. i will tell you he is a very talented guy. he made a terrible mistake because joan rivers, piers morgan, john rich, arsenio will all be judges. >> so what mistake did he make? >> he shouldn't have done it. it's like a champion. you're a champion. >> does he go out on top? >> you know about the fighter. i said, i can't believe you're doing this. you could have sat as a judge on certain evenings and had a good time. he said no, no. he did it, because he really wanted to raise -- he won but raised millions for the charity. he wanted to do it again. i think he made a mistake. it's like a heavyweight champion
8:41am
that gets knocked out coming back. i don't think he did the right thing. >> if your dad weren't the one doing the hiring or the firing, how would he do in this competition? >> phenomenal. >> do you really think so? >> yeah. i see it every day. >> i don't think so. >> i do. you're a great strategist. what's interesting about it, there are so many different skills you have to bring to the table. and why some people really sell is they're versatile. they're able to apply different skills to different problems and other people are very good at one specific thing and dad has proven through his career to be great at many. >> me, savannah, al and natalie, who would win? >> i'm not doing that. i refuse to comment. i'm going to get in such trouble. i won't do it. natalie might. >> we're hosting a "dateline" show. you have to ask natalie, it's airing before the apprentice. the show is about lottery winners. some of them lost all their money. some kept money and made money. >> only you could get two plugs
8:42am
in for one. >> i'm actually plugging natalie, because she was terrific. >> good to have you here. you can catch the season premiere sunday night 9:00, 8:00 central time here on nbc. we're back in a moment. this is "today" on nbc.
8:43am
8:44am
back now at 8:46 with two young men from chicago enjoying enormous success in a surprising field. nbc's ron mott is here with their story. good morning. >> it's a really lovely story, natalie. it's about the magill brothers, young african-american men who play clarinet and flute from major classical orchestras here in the u.s. they have highly coveted lead roles in the world where maybe 4% of the musicians are african-american or latino. a brother act unique in the
8:45am
rarefied world of classical music. anthony, who is 33, plays clarinet for the renowned new york metropolitan opera. while demare, four years older, plays lead flute for the seattle symphony orchestra. what is it about your brother's music that make it is special? >> anthony's musical voice is very, very clear. his personality shines. it is magnified through his clarinet. >> my brother is pretty scary growing up when he talked about music and i respected everything he said. i would hear him practicing hours and hours. he was practicing more hours than i think would be considered normal. >> they grew up in a working class household on the edge of chicago's more troubled neighborhoods. parents ira, a retired teacher,
8:46am
and demare sr., a former firefighter mortgaged the house five times to pay for music lessons. >> classical music, music without words as some people in my family would say, i would use it to lull them to sleep. >> they believe their boys' careers began the moment demare, just 7 at the time, found an old flute in a closet, a flute they're keeping forever. >> that's a foul right there. >> reporter: their music really took off at a place where the magills now get rock star treatment, nonprofit that offers free lessons to disadvantage kids after school for nearly 30 years. they say they only felt different when they competed at other music schools. >> in that context, there was no one that looked like me and i got a kick out of that. especially if i won.
8:47am
>> reporter: they won a lot and earned scholarships and a chance to perform as teenagers in a very special neighborhood. >> my television neighbor, demare and anthony magill. >> renowned cellist yoyo ma asked demare to perform with him at the president's first inaugural. >> better grades. >> oh, there you go. >> now whenever they're in chicago, they try to pass along what they've learned to the next generation. you may not know it, but the world of classical music is quite competitive. hundreds of musicians auditioning for those lead roles and the magill brothers now have. most of those positions have tenure so the magills could be in those prominent orchestra seats for life. >> they are ground breakers for sure. ron allen, thank you so much. giada is cooking up her

8:50am
contributor is here. let's start with the basics. you're in the supermarket, shopping for fish fillets or whole fish. what are you looking for? >> when you're buying fish, first of all, make sure it doesn't have any discoloration and that it's nice and moist, especially in the corners. when fish has been sitti for too long that's where you start to see. >> do you touch the fish? looking for firmness? >> you can touch it, it should bounce back a little bit. the meat of the fish should all be together. it shouldn't start to separate. >> when it comes to whole fish? >> it's a different story but the scales should all be very tight to the skin and the eyes should be nice and bright as you see that one is. you want to make sure, give it a nice smell if you can. >> if it's a little off -- >> if it's a little off, get away from it. >> forget about it? >> exactly. >> this is incredibly easy? >> very, very easy. if you like sole, and i think you do. >> i love sole. >> my daughter love it is because it doesn't have a fishy -- >> even people who aren't sure
8:51am
if they like fish love sole. >> put this down. you're going to try to learn something today. salt and pepper everything. pepper, little olive oil. we're going to stick this in the broiler. it cooks in five minutes. >> there's olive oil on it already. a little more? >> never hurt anyone. give it a nice tan. put it in the broiler for five minutes. the fish starts to -- the meat starts to flake and it's ready. it ends up looking like that. we'll make a really easy sauce. greek yogurt. >> whisk? >> sure. agave. >> molasses is a little too smoky -- go ahead. >> mustard? >> little dijon. lemon juice and chives for color and a little onion flavor. mix it all together. and you see with the agave, you could use honey. it's a more floury flavor that overpowers the fish. >> you're not going to cook it in this? this is the sauce. >> no. it goes on top. mix it really well because you
8:52am
want it to emulsify and get thick like a dressing. you got muscle there. >> muscles, plural. >> you're only using one muscle in that arm. pour over the fish. that's it. >> perfect. if you're not a sole fan you'll move on to salmon. >> that sauce works over any kind of fish or chicken. if you are a salmon fan, this is really good. cut the salmon. again, salt and pepper and olive oil. >> are you looking for farm raised or wild salmon? what do you like? >> obviously, i like wild. >> right. >> it depends on what you can find in the grocery store. i wouldn't eat a ton of farm raised if i were anybody. once in a while, no big deal. not all the time. if you can avoid it, even better. >> great. >> now make a little topping. you're thinking you're done, you're not. parsley, chives, lemon zest. matt does not like to use his hands. >> i don't know if i washed my hands before the segment. that's why i didn't do that.
8:53am
>> sprinkle it? >> go ahead. >> more than sprinkle really, we're supposed to pat it down but since you don't want to use your hands. >> almost a rub you've made? >> exactly. see how pretty that looks? >> yes. >> 375. >> for how long? >> ten minutes. sometimes less, depending on the thickness of the salmon? >> you wouldn't broil it? >> no, this we're baking. baked salmon, broiled sole. now we make a topping. >> hi, guys. >> we're here to eat. >> something nice and light. chopped arugala. go ahead. he keeps thinking i'm not going to make him work. capers. >> lemon juice again? >> lemon juice. >> what spices are here? >> red pepper and a little lemon zest. we're going to do olive oil and salt. >> sorry, sorry, sorry. go ahead. natalie, do the olive oil there team work, guys. >> mediterranean diet. >> it is, it is. and the great thing about these sauces is that they come together really fast and you can use them all -- there we go. you can use them on anything. this can be over steak, chicken,
8:54am
any kind of fish. i hear from a lot of people nobody likes the skin on the salmon. >> i love the skin. >> some people do. the problem is that it's hard to get crispy. so you can always have the person -- your fish person anywhere take it off for you if you prefer. >> like a chimichurra this one. >> exactly but with arugula. >> these look great. >> done. >> delicious. >> great steals and deals after your local news and weather. good morning to you. it is 8:56. i'm marla tellez. let's check that gorgeous forecast. >> one of those days we need to get outdoors because temperatures will be in the 70s.

8:59am
anne hathaway apparently very aware of her critics. hatha-haters are these sort of snarky people who view her as, i guess, not self-deprecating enough, a little too self-serious perhaps. it kind of springs a lot of it from her, quote, surprise at the golden globes. inspired tweets, almost 20,000 a minute. i don't quite get why people hatha-hate. i guess it gets to false humility is what i kept hearing. oh, my gosh, i can't believe i won this award. not the first actress to ever do that, by the way. i'm going to use this as a weapon against self-doubt as she looked at her golden globe. so i don't quite get it but it's out there. she's online. you can see it. >> it is so sad, the number of haters, period, out there. that's it. and it's sad that, you know, in a moment of her glory, she's a phenomenally talented actress.
9:00am
i guess had she maybe tripped as jennifer lawrence did, maybe that would have humanized her a little more. i don't know what people are expecting. >> well, we bring this up again because she finally came out this week and said, yeah, i hear all this stuff and it bugs me. >> how could it not? >> you have to stay positive. there was a new york magazine piece written where a woman asked a bunch of other women why don't we like anne hathaway. here's some of the responses. she says a theater kid with good intentions but secretly she annoys you. you want to be excited for her but deep down you're rolling your eyes. someone else said i think someone told her she was america's sweetheart and she believed it. >> oh, boy. >> i don't know. >> that's ridiculous. >> we love her. i love her. >> yeah. >> great actress, well deserved oscar. >> she works very hard at what she does. so, you know, i give her all the credit. >> we're the hatha-lovers. >> exactly. we'll come down on that side. keeping it with famous actresses, take two, have you seen this ad?
9:01am
audrey hepburn has been resurrected for this ad. the latest from u.k. chocolate brand galaxy. this footage is taken from the film "roman holiday." it went ahead after her sons, her estate essentially agreed to the use of her image. she's been used before in a gap ad, remember that one? >> i remember that. >> we've seen fred astaire in a dirt devil vacuum ad back in the '90s. >> there was a pepsi ad with elton john and all the icons in there. >> you get some people online and social media are saying it's ridiculous that her image is being brought back and used in this way to sell chocolate bars. but i mean it is a beautifully done ad. >> i don't think it's unflattering in any way. >> beautiful. >> and the deal is her estate owns the rights to it so she doesn't have a say anymore. her sons did it. i'm not sure fred astaire dancing with the vacuum cleaner is the best use of his image. >> although seeing him dance with a vacuum cleaner -- any time you can see him dance, it's pretty fabulous.
9:02am

9:03am

10:00am
>> well, we didn't hear that either. hopefully you heard that at home. >> did you hear it? what you said -- >> allegedly -- >> you said -- you didn't say it as a straight-out fact. >> because i don't know. >> you said "i think." >> i read it like everybody else in the papers early this week. so i don't know -- >> that was not independently confirmed by one of your -- sources. >> no, no, no. i had lunch with chris. i told you that. but we didn't talk about the baby and she didn't mention the sex. >> okay. so we don't know. that's what we're going on record saying. so there's a big controversy a-brewing. marissa mayer is the ceo of yahoo! and has been there for seven months and made news for a couple reasons. went back to work after having a baby after a couple weeks and that caught people off guard because it's unusual to happen. but she had been wanting this job for a long time and wanted to get in the saddle, there she
10:01am
was. she made an announcement she is going to ban working from home among the employees at yahoo!. >> right. >> and that caused a lot of -- >> a stir? >> a stir, yeah. because a lot of people rely on working from home to balance their life. you know. because they have obligations and kids. i guess she says people work better when they're face-to-face and she wants a lot of interaction, wants people around one another, et cetera, et cetera. but a lot of people are very, very upset, because people need to work from home. because they have other obligations, and -- >> there was a time when nobody worked from home unless you were a farmer. and then you worked at your farm. so a lot of people don't remember that that was the norm. that was very much the norm. and this is a new phenomenon going on in the workplace. >> and it's making it so a lot of people who have families and things like that can balance and work together. >> yes. >> it's caused a big stir. and your thoughts on the stir? >> well, i have mixed emotions on this. because, you know how i feel about trying to be fair to every -- to everybody involved. she's worked very long and very hard and she's to become a ceo.
10:02am
she is one of only 20 women in the country that are women ceos. so i think for all of us as women she would be grateful that some of them have -- gotten through that ceiling and are actually working at ceos. very makes an awful lot of money. she has won $117 million over the next five years. so -- >> big salary. >> but here's the point. she didn't start out as a ceo. she started out like everybody else, you know, working her way up. so she as now a ceo -- i don't think we would be having this discussion at all if she weren't a woman. because what was it, jack welch, what did he used to do at general electric? he used to -- >> his mandate was he would cut the bottom 10% because he said the bottom 10% weren't as productive so number one, they didn't really fit in the company right and said they would be happier elsewhere because they should be doing better than they are. >> yeah. so i think it's right as a ceo to run her company the way she thinks it's best run, because
10:03am
she is beholden to the shareholders. it's a public company. so i respect that. the stock, when she started was $16.64 a share. today it's up 33%. to $21 a share. so if you're a shareholder, you say, i like what she's doing with our company. if you happen to be somebody that's gotten used to having that time at home, you don't like it. i can see it from everybody's perspective. but the truth is, she has the right to make that choice. to benefit her company. >> i think if you're -- i think the whole thing is, you should -- employees work the best when they're happy. okay? and some people are, you know -- you feel like someone trusts you. if you feel like, look, i'm not a good work from home person. i'm not good at it, i'll admit it, i'm on the phone, and i watch soaps. other people work. >> "days of our lives." >> mom, are you watching marlena, i got into it. others are good at working from home. it shows a trust. here's a thing. if the productivity is down because people are working from
10:04am
home and there is an issue there. but if there are people who are very productive in their house and don't have to commute, which makes an hour sometimes back and forth -- two hours. >> of course. >> where you could be working. >> all good, good points. >> there are a lot of good reasons. and i think to make a blanket statement like now we're no longer having that policy and don't you think other companies will look at that going maybe that works. >> she has got to be vince lombardi and say this is my football field, my team. there are reports that there was a lot of slacking off at yahoo! a lot of waste, a lot -- and she is trying to get her ship in shape. i'm not saying it's a choice i would make. i think i would have liked to have gone to everybody and said, listen, you guys, we've got a big problem with slacking off. i'm going to give you guys an opportunity. this is what our tammy would do. of course -- tamsville. >> we want to point out tammy is the head of our show, female head of our show. people were writing in yesterday, and this is going off point for a second. because another guy who works here named davy was telling us to wrap the show up. dave doesn't run the show.
10:05am
dave is a guy who points at us. and tells us -- okay? tammy runs the show, and dave sleeps through it. >> he points -- really, really well. he's told by somebody in our control booth, you know -- it's time to go. we've got to wrap. so our female ceo right here, tammy, runs our ship. but i do think -- >> and she runs it extremely well, and she as a working mom says a day i get to work at home means a great deal to me much. >> i know it does. but steve birk, who is our ceo here at comcast, could say yes or no to the fact that she could do that. that's why you're a ceo. >> but -- >> you take the blame when things go wrong and you take a lot of money when things go well. >> if seems to me if somebody is productive at home, why shouldn't they work at home? >> the ceo -- >> how does she know what everybody is doing? >> maybe she does. how do we know what she knows? >> i know what she knows. so -- that's what i like to say
10:06am
i know. >> i do know one thing, people work really, really hard and two-income families and it's getting harder and harder to make ends meet. and i feel for everybody. but, you know, we live in a world where there's a certain system in place. and it's -- it may not seem fair to people. but -- >> but the funny thing -- >> she put in the hours or else she really slept her way up to the top. i don't know. even that way, honey, you pay. you know what i'm saying? >> the thing about an internet company, part of what was so magical about those companies are, you could work from different places. people talked about that. that's what made internet companies so cool and hip and neat. you could take your laptop, you could go outside, go in your home. >> but this world is evolving. you and i can't do our job from home. >> no, but i'm talking about her people and her job. that was part of the appeal of the internet. >> and they were losing in the marketplace. their company was going into the toilet. she had to do something. >> i just wonder if that was the thing to do. i'm just saying. and i know a lot of other people who work from home, from other
10:07am
companies are nervous that if my company does that, i'm scared. >> well -- >> because if my child has a sniffly nose and can't get into daycare, i don't want to call a babysitter and try to figure out how to work it all out. >> i feel for everybody. >> i like yelling. just getting louder and louder. >> everybody forgets that feminism started out about choice. we said we want the same choices men have. we want it, we want equality in the workplace. and everybody loves feminism until somebody makes a choice that's different from the one you would make. well -- >> i'm not saying her choice is right, hoda. i'm saying she has the right to make it. she is the head of that, and she is answerable to that board of directors and all of her shareholders. >> and her employees. >> and her employees. but they have the choice to leave if they would like to -- >> no, they don't. >> you can leave a job. this is not a gulag. >> you can leave a job, but where are you going? there is a terrible economy. you have to stay. you have no kmois choice. trapped, dropped. nowhere to go. >> like we are. >> just like we are.
10:08am
trapped. >> i'm not trapped, baby. maybe you feel that way. but i don't feel trapped. i feel grateful to have a job. >> i do too. >> grateful to make a living. >> grateful -- >> grateful i'm not trapped. >> okay. >> you notice not trapped by facial hair anymore. and please don't e-mail like i don't care about people. it is not about that at all. it is not about that. i do. and i wish things were perfect for everybody. they're not. and i'm just trying to be fair. >> i know you are. but let's talk about something trivial that doesn't matter. okay. ben affleck's beard. >> as the country goes into the toilet, sure. >> this is very important, though. because do you think he looked fetching with his beard? >> i really like ben affleck, i think he's incredibly talented, not my type and i'm sure jennifer garner is going to be so thrilled to know i'm not a threat. but i like him without the beard best. >> me too. i do too. this is what -- these are different levels. that's the full beard from "argo," that's the scruffy look in the middle and the other is plain. we actually did a klg and
10:09am
hoda.com poll. >> because we thought it was important. >> that's what we poll on. we didn't poll on the other thing. we polled on this. apparently most people like him clean-shaven. >> yes. and everybody made a big thing about -- sorry. phlegm. george clooney -- ahhh! >> gross. >> fry the fish! no, that george clooney -- stop waving to us. no, no, we're just going to say no. george clooney has got a beard for a role that he's about to play. and we want to say, if you watch "top chef" you're familiar with quick-fire wines. it's the name of one of the challenges of the show and we are drinking it to celebrate their finale tonight. >> tonight? >> i've got -- this is not the chardonnay. we both have the pino noire. >> they're duking it out, our boss and the guy who points at us. >> tammy, ceo, what do you want us to do? >> go to break? >> not the new kid on the block.
